    Stickfighter

    ★★★★

    This unseen gem is amazing. I don't know how or why this vanished from cinematic history, but it's a real shame. It falls firmly into that sweet spot between legitimately solid action film and odd passion project. It's awkward in every way, and in all the right ways.

    But let's start with star and writer Kely McClung as DEA agent John Lambert. McClung is exactly what you want in this role: a guy with quality martial arts skills and a…

    Attack of the Beast Creatures

    ★★★½

    My luck with tiny monster movies has been great lately!

    Attack of the Beast Creatures is populated completely by people who only appeared in Attack of the Beast Creatures. Written, directed, edited and produced by people who only worked on Attack of the Beast Creatures. It appears to be a pure, uncut labor of love...and I love it for that.

    The story's simple. Castaways from the shipwreck Obelisk wash ashore on an island that is infested with tiny little dolls…

    Bid Time Return

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    After Alien Blood, I wanted to see what else Jon Sorensen had done. Which is this...

    After a thing that's happened which killed everybody else (I guess), a couple must take their daughter to a desert location so she can be saved from the thing that's happening...by a gunslinger.

    If you're looking for worldbuilding, look elsewhere. Time's running backward because...books, maybe, and this in no way affects the plot. Literally nothing affects the plot.

    They must go to the place.…

  • Alien Blood

    Alien Blood

    It's the final day of 1999, there's some aliens on earth and some masked, British MIBs want them dead. There's...twenty minutes of silent set-up before our alien mother and daughter end up crashing a vampire role-playing party where they'll have to make their stand until their ride gets here.

    There are movies that hold your hand and guide you along their narrative journey, and then there's movies like Alien Blood which treat cinema like some kind of endurance test. It's…

    Phantom of the Ritz

    ★★

    A middle-aged guy follows his dream to re-open a dilapidated theater, so he can cater to that raging 50's nostalgia of the 1980's. Little does he know that the theater already has a tenant, a massive, burned cinephile who's been hiding there since Elvis got drafted. Eventually the 50's rock-'o-rama will open and new management will come to clash with the theater's original occupant.

    This is the first movie I've watched for this month where I can barely find any…

    Halloween Kills

    ★★½

    Michael Myers goes for a stroll, while the monsters are due in Haddenfield. And apparently evil dies tonight?

    It's... fun when the tagline of your film is 9% of the total spoken dialogue.

    It probably doesn't help Halloween Kills that we're all acutely aware that Halloween Ends is coming. It creates some obvious boundaries to how things can and will unfold.

    I like some aspects of this. It's bloody. Michael's doing his whole slow-and-steady thing. Jamie Lee Curtis is damaged…
